the economy's slow growth. the unemployment rate in michigan is over the national average and things look much worse in the detroit metro area. unemployment there is nearing 16%. kristen welker is live for us at the white house. kristen, the president right now on board air force one and is touching down soon. what can we expect to hear from him? >> white house officials say the president will talk about the importance of creating a strong middle class to this economic recovery. he'll also likely challenge democrats and republicans to get behind that big jobs plan that you just mentioned that he's going to roll out on thursday. we don't know specifically what's going to be in the plan, i can tell you a couple of things that have been under consideration including extending payroll tax breaks as well as investing in infrastructure, green energy projects and also providing tax breaks for companies who hire new employees. now the community today that will be listening to the president speak thousands of union workers will of course be listening very closely to his words today and again on thursda
at the time i became governor in michigan had some taxes that other states didn't. and we had a study done and one of the things it showed pretty clearly is that people were mobile. and we were losing people. and i think there's been some evidence lately in other states where tax increases have resulted in the relocation, the taxes on certain classes of people or income levels or whatever resulted actually in less revenue as they relocated residences to other states. my good oregon constituent is now a las vegas resident. apparently the legislature did a little tax changes in senator wyden's state. i think on the tax expenditure side we're kind of presenting unprecedented testimony today to say, look, let's put them all on the table but let's use them to achieve what, again, senator wyden mentioned, get that rate low. if you start losing these and i think the finance committee has got, you know -- we're counting you to be the champion to fight the poaching of these by other spenders or other interests around the congress who haven't studied the issue the way you have, but you've got to pro
new. here in michigan, obviously, it's been very hard hit in large part because of the auto industry. the white house, clearly, picked the gm headquarters to talk a little bit about the auto bailouts which they believe saved thousands of jobs. and the unemployment rate in this state has dropped. two summers ago it was over 14%. now it's 10.9%. but, obviously, still far worse than the national average, still very dangerous politically for a president who's facing re-election. i should note as well that some of the union officials, the labor crowd, the president also trying to rev up his political operation heading into 2012. the teamster president, jimmy hoffa jr., was speaking a couple moments ago and saying we'll remember in november who's with the working people. he was chiding republicans, specifically named the tea party, and then his language got a lot stronger, and pardon my language as i repeat it. he said of the tea party and republicans, quote, let's take these sons of bitches out. it got some cheers here from the crowd in detroit. megyn: i just want to make sure we understa

obama will spend his labor day in michigan a state hard hit by employment. in his annual address, the president is expected to preview his jobs plan to union workers and their families in detroit. he'll unveil his entire plan in a speech on thursday night. the administration says it will lay out a series of steps that congress could act upon, including transportation and infrastructure initiatives. initiatives to help homeowners and tax breaks to support new hires. >> if you are not hiring, you're unpatriotic according to the international brotherhood of teamers james hoffa. on the state of the union, hoffa called apple, general electric and pfizer unpatriotic for opening factories and stores overseas instead of investing in employment right here in the united states. he said, big companies have a responsibility to get americans back to work and if they aren't doing that, president obama should call them out. >> i think the president should challenge the patriotism of these american corporations that are sitting on the sidelines saying why do we have high unemployment but i'm not
to detroit, michigan. he'll address the congress about job creation and travelling to richmond to discuss the program. this comes on the heals of last weeks disappointing jobs report. wir told no net jobs were created. >> president barak obama is spending the weekend at camp david working on his speech. >> it doesn't help when those folks turn around and risk losing hundreds of thousands of jobs. >> unemployment is left lodged at 9.1%. >> the president will come forward with specific proposals that by a measure would add to growth and job creation in the short term. >> the plan is based on tax relief, including tax credits for company who's hire new workers. tarring estimated assistance for long term unemployed. those out of a job six months or longer. >> it won't make the percentage higher. >> they want to try to help company that's create jobs. >> you have a lot of people going for the same job. they probably need about two people to fill in a job. >> it's been difficult. >> so many will be listening to the president on thursday. >> looking at the day ahead, the corruption trial against
will support this democratic president or will we see in places like michigan what we saw in the reagan days, blue collar reagan democrats helping the republicans? >> i think it's going to be different this time because of the attack on the -- on labor by the tea party. we had 100,000 people at a rally in madison, wisconsin. we had 50,000 people in ohio. we collected a million signatures in ohio. people realize what's going on, that they might have voted republican a small group of organized labor. but i think people are aware now that this group is coming after them. when they start talking about, you know, getting rid of social security, medicare, medicaid, rolling back collective bargaining in major states, i think this is -- this has been the wake-up call an maybe labor needs. and some of those people that voted republican are now going to say, what a mistake i made because i didn't know they were going to take my job away, i didn't know they were going to take clollective bargaining awa. you saw what they did and what they believe in. and you heard this debate in washington with regard
the jobs numbers and this city suffering worst than most. unemployment here is at -- well, in michigan it's at 10.9%, but in detroit it's almost at 16%. over 50% are among the long-term unemployed. why does that matter in this is a state that the president won by 17 points. and now his approval rating in the state is at 34%. those are bismol numbers, ted. he has to get the numbers up if he hopes to win re-election. we will see the president here not just today but a lot in the next year as he campaigns for re-election. >> any hint on what he will talk about today and specifically if there will be any sneak peek into what he will deliver on thursday in terms of his plan? >> in terms of the plan we will hear him talk about the fact that he will press for measures that had bipartisan support in the past. this is a big theme for the white house, the kinds of initiatives he is proposing to increase job employment in this country, and they have had the support of republicans previously so should again. i know that we will have him talk about the importance of having a strong middle class for ec
the tea party will have on all of this. >> in michigan today, it was a call for more. in new hampshire a glaring contrast. though the battle for the white house, even among those who have not officially jumped in the rain, but centered not just on jobs but also catering to the tea party. >> and now we are seeing more and more folks realize the strength of -- the strength of this grassroots movement. >> the tea party has at its center court a belief that government is too big. sound familiar? >> the target was anything status quo. >> it is going to take a different kind of leadership. he is the most effective food stamp president in the history of the country. >> and they have plenty of ammunition with no new jobs created. >> i think we are in much bigger trouble than a lot of people realize. >> perhaps leeling, but still able to rally -- perhaps reeling, but still able to rally, president obama -- >> now is the time for them to worry about your job. >> and just as the president will outline a way to create jobs this week, mitt romney says he will unveil his own plan this week. of cour
that debate as well. is the president spoke to a friendly audience in michigan at a union event in detroit. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellen is there. he was pretty warmly received in detroit. >> he really was, wolf. and you know, labor day is traditionally the kickoff to campaign season. the president came to detroit and delivered a campaign style speech. >> as long as i'm in the white house, i'm going to stand up for collective bargaining. >> for a moment, it seemed like old finals temperature -- old times. >> four more years! four more years! >> the president took his sharpened message out for a test drive. >> we have roads and bridges across this country that need rebuilding. labor is onboard, business is onboard. we just need congress to get onboard. >> if they don't act, he all but threatened to campaign against a do-nothing congress. >> the time for washington games is over. the time for action is now. no more manufactured crisis, no more games. it's time for them to stop worries about their jobs. it's time for them to worry about your jobs. >> the people in michig
been very useful to democrats in michigan. in the auto industry. so, initially, you have this sort of sense of acquiescence by democrats that, all right, we don't normally offset emergency funding, but to get this through and to avoid another big fight, we're going to do it. but then democrats seemed to sense an opening. there was a newly combative attitude coming out of the white house thaw referred to earlier, and they decided to hold the line on their troops, and they voted against the c.r. in the house, sending the original, in the original vote it we want down to defeat. republicans rallied. they made cosmetic changed to get their people on board. and then the senate, which had been expected to sort of swallow whatever came over from the house, decide that had they would get their back up and that they would block, which they did. so now we're supposed to have a vote on the democrat i go version, which provides extra money in disaster relief without cutting the loan program or the other things that republicans threw in, but that's expected to fail as well. so over the weekend,
